Although this could be a close second, can’t imagine Jay Z is going to be too chuffed when he sees someone trying to Trade Mark this for clothing…
Without further ado (there was some ado earlier, in case you missed it), here’s today’s Interesting IP:
More tomorrow at lunchtime
I was a bit late in the day getting to last week’s UK Patents Office Journals (they have separate ones for Patents, Designs and Trademarks, and their Trade Mark Journal alone ran to 373 pages this week) because the next one is out this Friday. HOWEVER, some of the applied for Trade Marks were simply too good not to pass comment on. May I present to you…..
Mo Farrah seems to be starting a foundation, which was nice! He’s not the applicant though:Calling All Sofa Dodgers!
Ladies, protect those precious heels with Clear Heels Heel Stoppers:
For the distinguished gentlemen with much money, but little hair, Filthy Rich Hair:
Superman called…..he wants his logo back!
Someone obviously thinks that Scotland will say Yes the second time around – Yes2Scotland:
I can’t say this is the most appealing logo I’ve ever seen. Poor Doggy. Inconti-Pet:
Who doesn’t want one of these bad boys from the Designs Journal? A “Battery Powered Brain Stimulation Headset”:
And two of my favourites to finish: Pulled Pork anybody? You need….Porkinator!
And how does Bob Marley like his Donuts? With Jammin! HA! We’re Jammin:
The next UK Trade Mark Journal is out on Friday, and I for one can not wait!
The Happy Mondays are a band, they are also the only time it’s acceptable for the words ‘Happy’ and ‘Monday’ to be in such close proximity to each other I feel!
Here’s today’s Interesting IP
Cecil Carter applied for a Trademark for “Lip Sync Battles Irl” (lipsync battles ireland) which is interesting.
He’s also applied for, lipsync challenge show and lip sync fundraiser. Both of those applications are still pending while the one for Lip Sync Battles IRL has been granted and registered. That registration poses some interesting questions about registration, and it will be very interesting to see what happens next and if the registration is challenged by the company who owns the rights to the famous TV show “Lip Sync Battles” on the basis that only they are entitled to use the name.
Interestingly, aside from the US, Ireland has the highest number of trademark applications in the world for the words “Lip Sync”
Oh Ireland, never change!
Trade Mark Applications
Tony Fenton Trade Mark – I got a bit of a shock to see Tony’s name in the journal, but it looks as if his brother has applied for registration of his name for Charitable purposes, so The Dude may live on. Your a WINNNNNNNNNNER:
FoodStuffs for Dogs – Is it just me, or does it seem like there must be a word missing from this application? Surely there should be a word in that bubble that the dog is holding up, right?
New TV from Sky?? Well they have just registered ‘Now TV’ in Ireland:
Ooooooh, Ice Cream!
There’s loads of Trade Marks removed from the register every time the journal is released, but this one nearly had me fall off my seat….
Don’t worry though, they still have the word mark registered, so I think the Hula Hoops are safe!
The majority of the Patent Office Journal is taken up with international patents being formally registered for recognition in Ireland under various treaties and agreements, but there’s also a small number of Patent Applications registered in Ireland in the office every week. Here’s the pick of our brainy inventors:
A Convertible Shoe!! Seriously, I don’t even know what it converts into and I’m already all like:
Look! Seriously! Some genius called Owen Laverty has applied for a patent for a convertible shoe. Smashing.
